Sins & Needles by Karina Halle

Words cannot adequately describe how much I loved this book. I haven’t been reading a lot of adult contemporary lately so I decided to pick this one based on some of the glowing reviews I had read. Well Sins & Needles certainly did not disappoint. I absolutely loved it and was riveted from beginning to end. I cannot wait until the next book in the series is released and let me tell […]

Counterfeit Son by Elaine Marie Alphin

Counterfeit Son is a really hard book to rate and review. It is a very dark story and the subject matter is deeply disturbing. I cannot say I enjoyed reading it but I was definitely riveted.

Echo Emerson, former popular girl turned social outcast, is a girl […]

Dolores (Lola) Nolan is a budding fashion designer who lives in San Francisco with her two dads. She has an older boyfriend Max (who is a budding rock star) and a best friend who is determined to become […]

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

I have had the biggest smile on my face since I finished reading Anna and the French Kiss. It was just what I was in the mood for since I have been going through a spell of heavier, more angst-ridden books lately. I really loved this and now cannot wait to read the follow-up Lola and the Boy Next Door. Anna and the French Kiss revolves around a girl called Anna (funnily enough!) […]
